Chinese New Year in 2019 starts on Tuesday, February 5th and ends on January 24th, 2020. The year of the Earth Pig 2019 comes right after the Year of the Earth Dog (2018) and before the year of the Metal Rat (2020)! The Pig occupies the last (12th) position in the Chinese Horoscope. You are a “Pig Chinese Zodiac native” if you are born in one of these years: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031.
The Chinese calendar has 5 characteristic elements – metal, water, wood, fire and earth, which are considered essential components of everything that exists throughout the Universe. The relationship between these elements can help us predict the events that will occur in someone’s life, and by using this information, a specific person can increase their good luck and minimize their misfortune. Therefore, we can distinguish five representative types for the Pig sign:
- Wood Pig – 1935, 1995
- Fire Pig – 1947, 2007
- Earth Pig – 1959, 2019
- Gold Pig – 1911, 1971
- Water Pig – 1923, 1983
The Chinese calendar is a fascinatingly accurate system, which not only can reproduce the time intervals, but, in the same time, is a tool for predicting the future. The notorious traditional Chinese system of reading the future “The Four Pillars of Destiny” make it possible to discover the destiny of a person by using the date of birth, converted in the format of the Chinese calendar.
The 60 years cycle is generated by mixing the two components in a relatively complex succession. In brief, each sexagenarian cycle of the Chinese zodiac starts with the Wood Rat Year (Jia Zi) and ends with the Water Pig Year (Gui Hai).
The terrestrial branches are the 12 animals from the Chinese Zodiac: Zi (Rat), Chou (Ox), Yin (Tiger), Mao (Rabbit), Chen (Dragon), Si (Snake), Wu (Horse), Wei (Goat), Shen (Monkey), You (Rooster), Xu (Dog), Hai (Pig).
The General Characteristics of Pig Zodiac Sign:
The Pig belongs to the group of water signs, it represents the beginning of winter and is the birth month of wood. Therefore, the Pig symbolizes the plant germination and the birth of a new life form. Consequently, the Year of the Pig can bring a new start in the international relationships and a new social order and, in some countries, can lead to new regimes and new governments. The Pig is also considered a “Traveling Star”, that’s why the Year of the Pig will stimulate traveling more than other years. The tourism industry will greatly benefit from this.
According to the Chinese tradition, the Pig is the life-lover architype and, in 2019, we all need to learn how to take advantage, in an intelligent manner, of everything that’s beautiful in life. During this year, all the qualities of the Pig sign will find a way to express themselves: firstly, the gentleness and the generosity. Therefore, we’ll need to be more attentive to others and, on a collective level, all the altruistic initiatives will be favored.
Another great quality of the Pig is the joy to live, and the Chinese astrologers believe it would be difficult to find another zodiac sign exulting as much optimism as the Pig. This characteristic can be an inspiration for all of us, giving us a better mood and a 100% zest for life…But, caution!
As all Chinese zodiac signs, the Pig also has its weaknesses. Endowed with an extraordinary imagination, the Pig sometimes lacks realism and can be content only with dreaming, instead of acting. This year we need to avoid this inclination which might take us out of the race before the finish line.
Not least, the Pig is naive: his kindness prevents him from seeing treachery, which makes him an easy target for unscrupulous people. Therefore: be a bit more suspicious in 2019 and try not to see life in pink all the time.

How is going to be the Year of the Pig 2019 for every Chinese Zodiac Sign:
In the year of the Pig 2019, you won’t be able to exploit all your qualities, unless you take into consideration the opinions of others, especially of your family and professional staff. It is true that you are very independent, but it is in your best interest to be more cooperative and to take a step towards others.
In the Year of the Pig of 2019, your priority is your family, but this doesn’t mean you won’t achieve success in other domains, although to do so, you will need – above all – the gentleness and the understanding of your loved ones. Beware, though: because you are an Ox, you sometimes tend to let yourself be coddled too much, so it would be best not to get attached exclusively to your nest…
Born in a strong and independent zodiac sign, as a general rule, you do what you please. This year through, you will need to learn how to come to terms with others. No matter how much effort you put into something, everything that you initiate against the stream, even if you are convinced you are right, is a risk that could lead you into an impasse. Even in your family life, it would be best if you could restrain your independent nature: your loved ones need you.
An excellent year is waiting for you! A bit less wary than usual, you will easily get close to others and make new friends. The optimism that is a characteristic of the Pig’s years is going to help you overcome your melancholic personality that sometimes plays tricks on you. Happy and relaxed, your will let your sensual nature that you mostly keep hidden to freely express itself.
For you, the impact of the Pig’s calmness will mean an year of reconsiderations. In the past few years, many of you got stuck in uncomfortable situations, either professionally, or in your personal life. Influenced by the Pig’s optimism and joy to live, you will be pushed from behind to reconsider all these things.
You, who usually have a habit of calmly and discretely mediating on plans for the future, will openly prove what you are capable of. Due to the Pig’s influence, a very favorable zodiac sign, you will roll up your sleeves to obtain affirmation and to change everything that doesn’t sit well with you in your life. There are many – from your family or from your workplace – who will not understand your pursuit: you’ll have to be combative and persuasive.
The year of the Pig 2019 is going to be more auspicious than the Dog Year 2018, which just has ended. Optimistic and adventurous, you will set one goal: to affirm yourself with no delay. Your impetuosity and talent is going to help you succeed in everything you do, but keep in mind that your success will be remarkable only if you listen the advices of the people around you and if raise up to their expectations.
A 2019 year under the mark of chance, when all your ambitions will be fulfilled. But you will have to roll up your sleeves: if you passively expect for success to come to you, you are only going to get disappointed. When dealing with others, control your impulsivity and frankness and show subtlety and diplomacy.
A year under the influence of chance. More dynamic than usual, you have only one wish: to be active and to succeed. In your relationship with others, beware: you like to be manipulative, but this year you’ll need to be very honest and direct. Stop playing a double game because this kind of attitude might turn against you.
This year, your inherent optimism will be increased tenfold and will give you wings: you are certain nothing bad is going to happen to you and you go on with an extraordinary enthusiasm. But, be careful: if you are exclusively counting on chance, you are not going to accomplish too much. You need to actually pay attention to the quality of your relationships with others, if you want to succeed.
Rational and pragmatic, your motto is to count only on your own efforts in order to succeed. Yet, this year you will realize that chance also plays a role in your achievements, so get ready to derive the maximum benefits from the domains that are important to you, either professionally, financially or in your family life.
Year 2019 is yours, right? This means exacerbated qualities, but also flaws that are getting pushed to the limit. First of all, be careful not to yield to your usual sin, which is to dream rather than to live your life. Start by setting your priorities and then get to work: once you start moving, you will start seeing results.
